This exciting interdisciplinary master’s programme combines philosophy, history of art and museum studies as well as theory with practice. It is specifically designed to equip students with the competence and understanding to equally pursue upon completion, either a doctorate programme in the Arts and Humanities, or a professional career in the cultural sector.
In addition to traditionally taught modules, students also benefit from research-led teaching and support with learner-directed independent projects, including the opportunity to take three-month studentships with Tate Liverpool and FACT, exclusively offered to our students. Professional skills and networking are developed through a 10-day placement with one of our cultural partners, which include: Tate Liverpool, FACT, National Museums Liverpool, the Bluecoat, METAL, Open Eye Gallery, Unity Theatre, the National Trust and many other leading institutions in Liverpool and the North West.
The programme is structured around 4 compulsory core modules: Main Topics in theory and history of art, in which members of staff lead weekly seminars on their own current research; Cultural Institutions, which takes places at a range of collaborating cultural institutions around the city, including the University’s Victoria Gallery and Museum, Research, Employability, and Professional Skills and placement, supported by the careers and employability service and our cultural partners, and a supervised dissertation or case study over the summer. Students also take three elective modules chosen from a list of relevant modules available in the Department and across the University.
Our programmes aim to equip students with the general and widely applicable analytical, argumentative and problem solving skills and abilities valued by employers. Some of our postgraduate students have gone on to a career in academic Philosophy, but a variety of careers are open to those obtaining postgraduate Philosophy degrees, including business, management, the law, the media, the arts, computing, the Civil Service and teaching.
